Knesset advances bill to bring electricity, water to illegal outposts

The Knesset advances a bill that would connect illegal outposts in the West Bank to electricity and water infrastructure.

The bill is approved in its preliminary reading 60-40, after winning the support of some Blue and White lawmakers.

It would need three more votes to become law.
